Bell Schedule & Attendance

Malden Catholic operates on a six-period day, seven-day rotating schedule. Freshmen and Sophomores have seven periods of instruction each day; most Juniors, six and one-half; and Seniors six. The school day begins at 8:05 AM and ends at 2:30 PM. All students, including seniors, are expected to arrive at school allowing enough time to be in their classes at the start of the day. Students are normally dismissed after the last period of the day at 2:30 PM, provided they have fulfilled all of their responsibilities. In the event a student is assigned an extra-help, makeup, or detention session, it is his responsibility to be present at the session.


Each day a student is absent, his parent or guardian must call the School Office at 781-475-5384 between 7:30 AM and 8:30 AM. The caller should identify himself/herself, give the name of the student, his or her relationship to the student and the reason for the absence.

A student who is absent must bring an explanatory note written and signed by his parent or guardian to the School Office before school begins on the day of his return, or the student's parent should send an explanatory email to
